. >> we formed a relationship with mayor newsom a while back. i met him at his office and presented to him -- major artistic genre at black rock. and this is portable monumentality. we told him there are great portable monument works of art all around the bay area. not so much in san francisco, but certainly in oakland. in the east bay. there are some facilities left in the city. being an acute politician, he soon realized what that meant. it was the answer to a political problem. if you put a piece of art in a neighborhood, community members will bicker about it endlessly. if it is only there to be there three months, that is something else coming in deed. i could see a light bulb above his head when we said that. -- something else, indeed. one could just create art paths out of durable materials upon which you could amount to such works of art. then the entire city, given the supply of createive talent, the whole city could be a revolving work of art. that would be wonderful. that is what black rock city is. why not transpose that to san francisco? i think the city is now looking at doin

team started about 8 years ago and under mayor newsom's leadership and mayor newsom had visited different locations around the country and had heavy belief in the fact that you need outreach to reach out to folks who are otherwise unable to connect to the services that can help them. there are lots of people who use our department of public health services, human health services, shelters, but the outreach team is composed in particular to reach out to folks who had the inability because of their disabilities to make these connections. and so we were put together, you know, staffing from the department of public health, from human services agency, from a nonprofit, cats, one of the wonderful thing about cats is that they actually hire people who formerly were homeless, who formerly were people with substance dependence and these are folks who have now recovered and they want to give back. so our co-workers are people who have actually been through the experience themselves along with some of our psychiatric and social work perspective, this one-two punch is a great way to addr

gavin newsom -- i'm sorry-excuse me, i missed a question here. my apologies. okay. this yes is for mr. everett, miss olague and miss selby. this is where i want to be. >> okay. >> thank you. again for mr. everett, miss olague and my selby. over the years there have been various proposals to allow non-citizen members of san francisco to vote in city elections. in your opinion, which city elections, if any, should be open to participation by non-citizen residents and which non-citizen residents should be allowed to vote in those elections? >> the harsh reality is that so many non-citizens still have children in our public schools here in san francisco, throughout the state of california and throughout the united states. as all of you undoubtedly know. with that being said, it's vitally important that those parents still have a say in the education of their children. i would certainly support and promote voting by those parents in school board elections in san francisco. by implication own a community college election would fit in that rubric, to support college advancement to people w

, 195 million dollar investment that will not increase your property taxes. that's what gavin newsom assigned me to and i worked hard to accomplish that. we don't fix it today, we're going to pay for it in the long run, our aging infrastructures exacerbate existing costs, we know that, and that's why we have placed a great amount of discipline in our all city assets. when we do this, we've shown we can build our assets and maintain them on time and within budget and for our parks bond as an example, the 2008 tax bond, all of them came in under budget or at budget and certainly on time and this means this new $195 million dollars will provide nearly 1300 new construction jobs. that's how we get our city moving. and we're not going to move backwards. we have to move forward and i want our city government to move forward at the same time. something that i had hoped not to see on the ballot, an effort to tear down our hetch hetchy and question whether and where we would ever get the cleanest water this country has from the hetch hetchy source. i have said over and over again this dan
